Event description

Description

We are glad to invite you to a presentation of I_HeERO – “Infrastructure Harmonised eCall European Pilot” implementation in Greece, that will be held on Tuesday, 24 October 2017 at the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport facilities, in Athens (Anastaseos 2 & Tsigante, GR-156 69 Papagos, Greece).

The European project I_HeERO: Deployment pilot project of EU-wide eCall is aimed at the preparation of Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in the participant Member States (Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Slovenia) for the deployment of eCall based on 112 as reference implementations. It addresses explicitly the PSAP element of the eCall roll-out and enables the PSAP to install hardware and software solutions that fit the necessary requirements within each Member State. The I_HeERO consortium is composed by 58 commercial partners and more than 100 associated partners. The Greek pilot site is implemented by the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS), G4S, Cosmote, PTL and e-Trikala.

A Demo Tour will be organised in several European cities, including Athens, to showcase the potential of eCall to save lives following traffic accidents involving HGVs, buses and coaches.

As part of the Demo Tour, the main objectives of the event in Athens are:

  • To present Ι_HeERO final achievements and outcomes;

  • To highlight road safety benefits of eCall for both Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) and passenger cars.

  • To show the road safety benefits an electronic consignment note (eCMR) can bring to eCall for HGVs by providing information on transported goods.

During the event you will have the opportunity to learn about the road safety benefits of eCall for HGVs thanks to a hands-on demonstration with an eCall equipped truck. In addition, eCall for passenger cars and an eCall enabled PSAP will also be showcased as a result of the Greek partners’ effort towards the implementation of the I_HeERO objectives.

The event is expected to attract a wide variety of participants from private and public institutions, local authorities, academic and research communities, manufacturers, road transport professionals and end users associations.

We will be very honored by your attendance to the I_HeERO presentation event in Athens. Please reserve your participation by 17 October the latest.
